are the best equipped in the world that tom selleck has not had one word to say about what happened at sandy hook elementary so yes, it is time to question tom's humanity is there anything in tom's humanity that recoils at his blood drencheded organization usings president's daughters in their ugly round of propaganda. is that okay with tom? i don't believe it is. he seems like a descent guy. but now we are going to find out how brave he really is. we are doing to find out who he really is. does he have the courage to come forward and say as a father himself that what the nra did, what his organization did is unacceptable. he has two kids. they are both adults now. we can all be absolutely certain that if i included their names in what i'm saying here, if i linked tom's kids in anyway to tom's 14 years of work making sure that our mass murderers are so well equipped that tom would beyond outraged. and he would have a right to that pa rental out rage. if and only if he shares this country's outrage with what the blood drenched leaders of the nr are a have done with the president's daughters.

at sandy hook. joe biden addressed the u.s. conference of mayors just this afternoon. >> in newtown some of those children were riddled with as many -- it's hard to even say it -- 11 bullet holes in a first grader. high capacity magazines in our view are not worth the risk. >> but you try telling that to the congress that would have to pass the legislation. republican responses have already ranged from i don't think so to impeach him. >> the president, he just doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment. >> i'm afraid president obama may have a king complex. >> he's already abused the law enough times that it's just been staggering. the american revolution was all about fighting such a monarchy. >> we want all tools available to use, including that impeachment. >> with that kind of congressional opposition to the president, it was no sweat for nra president david keene to dismiss the president's initiatives as nothing but a grab bag of liberal feel-goodies. >> this is all sort of makes you feel good, but, in fact, it doesn't do much. >> he's confident say
in sandy hook, more than 900 of our fellow americans have died at the hand of the end of a gun. if there is even one thing that can be done to end this violence and even one life to be saved, then we have an obligation to try. now tell the world daniel... of pepto-bismol to-go. plays a key role throughout our lives. one a day men's 50+ is a complete multivitamin designed for men's health concerns as we age. it has 7 antioxidants to support cell health. one a day men's 50+. >>> yes, we have had tragedies and yes, we have had too many innocent people lose their life and yes, it is unfortunate that it took those tragedies to get us to this point, but let's at least learn from what has happened. >> that was new york governor andrew cuomo signing the first gun control legislation in the wake of the sandy hook elementary school mass shooting. the new laws would expand the state's ban on assault weapons and it is the toughest the country has seen and while many are looking to the white house and capitol hill to make sweeping legislation, but perhaps swifter action is more likely to co
for superstorm sandy. the relief package was passed by the senate even though house speaker john boehner hadn't brought it up for a vote. in fact, the senate passage helped to put pressure on the house. sandy relief passed in the house with a minority of republican votes and almost every democrat. speaker boehner would not have brought the bill to the floor if it hadn't already been passed in the senate. there was similar pressure with the fiscal cliff deal. it passed in the senate first. then boehner was forced to bring it to the floor for a vote and the house, even though only a minority of republicans supported it. today senator majority leader harry reid seemed to clarify his position somewhat. in a statement he said, "i am committed to ensuring the senate will consider legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year. all options should be on the table." well, that sounds a little bit better. but there should be no hedging on this issue whatsoever. especially from democrats. because if they side with the president of the united states t

in the last week or two with the sandy relief passing and also the deal to avoid the fiscal cliff, it really, those things had more democratic votes than republicans, and a lot of sensitive, you know, that happens to john boehner too many times his speakership could be in trouble. so my guess is it will come from the senate, but you've got zoe meeting quietly with a republican from florida talking about details they can bring back to their colleagues. i think actually this is one of these issues where people in both houses are going to want to take credit for being outfront on this issue. i think you're going to see a spate of bills coming forward. >> scott, this is a hot issue. lots of legislators as you mentioned are jumping on the bandwag bandwagon. the lawmakers you talked to in washington, how hopeful are they there will be a bipartisan deal reached this time around? immigration has been attempted before and it's failed. >> i think there is a lot of hope. as i said, the stars kind of are aligning on this, not only do you have republicans willing to come to the table and talk seriously a
with the sandy and fiscal cliff votes. >> we'll stick with the metaphor. warming in cooperation or chilly confrontation? >> the incentives nationally for republicans are to do something about immigration. but if you are -- your average house member up there, you just won your district. probably did not support barack obama, and frankly your incentives are not aligned with the national party. you don't care about whether chrissis chriss christie or marco rubio gets support. pundits and grassroots and a lot of members will decide the issue in the house of representatives. >> big challenges for the president and internally. ahead on "starting point," we've heard about the second term curse. the final four years can turn into a bit of disaster. the obstacles that could give this president some second-term trouble, next. financial obstacles military families face, we understand. our financial advice is geared specifically to current and former military members and their families.

now. they have taxes raised and passed the sandy relief on a bipartisan vote and they will pass immigration reform and deal with the debt ceiling. he broke the republicans's arms on that. >> still got the votes. >> sandy relief who will disagree on that? >> a lot of of people. remember how chris christie was screaming? >> screaming at -- >> house republicans. >> right. >> what happens is up until now you had something called the hastert rule in the house. republicans stood together. that has been demolished in the last month. it's going to continue to be demolished when votes on immigration comes up and solving the sequestration money comes up and also on the budget. the real test for the president is whether he is going to go up against his own caucus to do things on medicare social security and a few other issues. >> we are looking at the president on a motorcade going down pennsylvania avenue. every time i look at the inaugural route, i can't help but go back to january 20th 1977 and jimmy carter breaking precedent and stepping out of the car and shaking h
for all of them, but as a group they don't necessarily care. >> jonathan makes the point that on the sandy relief bill they did the same thing, which was register opposition, pass it with democratic help. i feel like that is sort of under mining short-changes thinking republicans, which is to say can you do this for two years? basically register opposition and then let democrats sort of push the legislation through and not have anybody clued into -- that's what you're doing? >> they really care about this. they're not making it up or fake it. they really, really think that it would be better not to raise the debt ceiling, and so what you do is let the democrats on it. we take our republicans and save seats. on things where the leadership is in tune with the base, that's going to be a harder push, because then you're asking someone to vote against their own conscience and against their political interest. >> what happens on immigration? here you actually have "gop leadership." marco rubio is selling his plan to bill o'reilly. we don't have time to play the entire sound, but he talks about g
, on an awful lot of issues. look what happened the other day with sandy. it was democrats that got that bill over the line. but, you know, it should be working together for all of the american people, and right now all the polls are showing the american people, including nra members, including gun owners, are saying we should be doing something. one of the things that we noticed, most people, nra members, gun owners, didn't know that everybody was not going through a background check. they didn't realize that 40% of gun owners are getting their guns without going through a background check. these are all law-abiding citizens when they go to buy their guns. why isn't everybody else? that's what we're fighting for, and the president is not trying to be a king. he's trying to save lives. >> we're getting a mixed message from the right but here is the crazier talk. already there's push back to the potential of new federal gun laws in the states highlighted on your screen. for example, stay lawmakers in wyoming, texas, and tennessee proposed outlawing any enforcement of these laws. that's nullifi

like harlem or look at school shootings at places like sandy hook or columbine, none of these people are people that go to gun shows. you never hear about those people committing killings. maybe everyone has to calm down on this issue and take a moment to breathe. >>steve: before you go, i think to combat what happened, for instance, in sandy hook is the same thing the n.r.a. said and the president himself yesterday said we need more money for people with guns in schools? >> we've got a problem. we've got to address it. and we're going to have to pay for it a little bit. if that means emboldening law enforcement with more funds, we've got to do that. >>steve: jeffrey scott shapiro, former d.c. prosecutor. thank you for your unique perspective. >> thank you very much. >>steve: what do you think about that? spha*el -- e-mail us. is the government doing enough to help our wounded warriors find work? our next guest says no but he has a plan to fix all that. honey, they shrunk the sub. subway coming up short. it looks like it's a foot-long but it ain't! ♪ [ male announcer ] you've reach
